So you want to know more about JailBreak Events? - well you’ve came to the right place.
Here at JailBreak Events we have a dream, a dream to push people and make them experience a bit of life while doing a great thing such as raising money for charity. We are 5 young, determined guys from a small town in East Sussex who want to make a difference in the world in a positive way.
“Choosing inspiration over competition for a stronger community is a healthier way to do business.”
We are a non-profit organisation called Jailbreak Events Ltd,
Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for our selected charities, these charities vary from event to event and team to team.
JailBreak is a 48 hour travel challenge in aid of charity. In the run up to the event, our team at contestants raise money for the chosen event charity.
After the horn has sounded, each team has to travel as far as possible without spending any of their own money on travel and relying on the public to help.
The winner is the team which travels the furthest distance from the start within the 48 hour period measured in miles.
The charities we have been working with so far are;
Taylor Made Dreams - We chose this particular charity because its close to our hearts and is run by one of our teams family and was created in name of his brother who sadly passed away.
EPAfrica - One of our team was involved with this charity to help plan future projects and raise money to fund said projects.
Think Pacific - They build schools, improve sanitation, improve health and provide education and sports programmes for children living in hardship in Fiji.
After just 1 month of fundraising and advertising we had managed get £1,500 in donations from friends, family and local businesses.
This got us thinking, if we can earn this much in a poorly planned month of fundraising, if we really worked hard and put our minds to it there's no limit to what we could achieve for our chosen charities.
